Famous Five Statues
Calgary, Alberta, CA

Posted by Grant Neufeld.

Since February 14th, 2003 we have held a silent vigil for peace in the heart of our city. (OK. Sometimes we aren't exactly silent, but we are peaceful.) We stand among the statues of the Famous Five on the 2nd Friday of each month from 12:00 to 12:45.

Everyone is welcome to join us for a few moments in Olympic Plaza, downtown Calgary. We believe in the Chinese proverb: "It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.”

In Calgary, we focus on creating a monthly oasis of peace in the heart of our city; supporting and running peace camps for children; disseminating information about peace events in Calgary; speaking to community groups, and supporting the peace advocacy of individual members.

(In spite of what it says on the Facebook event listing, this is not hosted by Grant — just posted by Grant.)
